Celebrate National Wildflower Week At Milltown State Park -Wednesday, May 4 at 6:00 pm
(Milltown, MT) – Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) is hosting a “Wildflower Walk” at Milltown State Park on Wednesday, May 4 at 6:00 pm as part of National Wildflower Week.
Montana boasts an abundance of beautiful wildflowers that draw the attention to anyone spending time outdoors. Montana State Park staff and members from the Missoula chapter of the Native Plant Society will lead participants along Milltown State Park’s trails that lead from the bluff down to the floodplain of the Clark Fork River. Along the way, they’ll identify and catalog native plant species in bloom.
This event will be a great opportunity to learn more about Montana’s wildflowers. Spending a springtime evening on the trails is just the added bonus!
This event is free. Attendees are asked to meet at the parking lot of the Overlook Trailhead, and dress appropriately for Montana springtime weather.
For more information, call Michael Kustudia at (406) 542-5533.

NEW TRAILS AND OLD TALES: THAT’S WHAT BONNER IS MADE OF
By Jen Slayden, Make It Missoula
I occasionally enjoy taking the scenic route home to Bonner from Missoula, just to see what is new. I drive via the old Highway 10 which meanders through East Missoula, past Marshall Mountain, into West Riverside, over the bridge to Milltown, and then on into Bonner. Looking back through the rear view mirror of the past twenty years, the physical transformation of the landscape has been remarkable. What once was undeveloped acreage in Bandmann Flats now sits the polished and manicured Canyon River Golf Course and community. As I drive by Marshall Mountain, memories of night skiing take me back to my college days when life was more freestyle in every way.
Today a new scene emerges as I approach West Riverside. A fresh pedestrian trail is materializing at highway 10 and Tamarack road which heads east.
